Dani Bischoff (Barclays LÁtelier Western Cape Finalist) and Rob van Vuuren (Standard Bank Ovation, Comics Choice and SAFTA Award Winner) have written and directed a show for children that is inspired by all their four and a half year old daughter’s favorite stuff.
‘We wanted to put together a show that our own daughter would love. So we’ve created a magical mountain full of fairies, dragons, giants and talking animals and found the best most versatile actors and musicians we could (Fleur du Cap Award Winner Dean Balie – Kat and the Kings, Blood Brothers, Orpheus in Africa) and Fleur Du Cap and Standard Bank Ovation Award Winner Sne Dladla – Fergus of Galloway, Betty and the Yeti, Orpheus in Africa) to infuse it with great comedy, awesome music and beautiful performances.’ Says Van Vuuren.
